  • Patent number: 10555226
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for determining a location of a mobile device. The location of a mobile device is determined accurately according to information which includes call data records of the mobile device. By employing a partial ellipse integral model, two physical world factors are taken into consideration in reducing the location uncertainty in call data records. The factors include: spatiotemporal constraints of the device's movement in the physical world and the telecommunication cell area's geometry information, which increase the accuracy of determining the location of a mobile device.

    Abstract: A method and/or system for managing a database that stores space-time context objects is provided. The system receives a query range in a multi-dimensional space. The system maps the query range into a set of fragments of a space-filling curve that fills the multi-dimensional space in all dimensions of the multi-dimensional space. The system uses each mapped fragment in the set of mapped fragments as a key to query the database for space-time context objects that are mapped to the space-filling curve. The system queries the database by identifying one or more context objects that intersect the mapped fragment at the space-filling curve.
